[SinglePic not found]

The nominees for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards were announced earlier this morning, and since I think everything is about me, I put my prediction in italics. The only people on this list who deserve an Oscar are Jeff Bridges and the utterly brilliant Cristoph Waltz, so my winners are what I’ve come to expect from the Academy. When a 3D remake of Pocahontas is the toast of the town, you should really consider reading some pamphlets on suicide. You know, just to consider all of your options.
